Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities
Come and explore the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities at the University of Canterbury, where you can see more than two and a half thousand years of human history through the amazing James Logie Memorial Collection.
The Logie Collection is one of the finest teaching collections of Greek and Roman antiquities to be found in the Southern Hemisphere. The Collection includes Greek and Roman artefacts, with objects from Ancient Egypt, as well as a small collection of Greek and Roman coins. The Collection spans more than 2500 years from about 2000 BC, with pottery from Bronze Age cultures onwards. A particular strength of the Collection is Greek painted pottery from the Archaic Period. The main purpose of the Collection is to support teaching and learning at the University, and in the wider community.
